Money Morning: Truly Transparent & Proudly Profitable - 9/26/2016

Welcome Enthusiasts to quiet Monday.  I mention quiet because come Monday’s, all the faux gaming ‘experts’ who took to twitter to blab about their 500 star, 8% bombs of the month each weekend come Mnday are like cockroaches in the light scurrying for cover.  These crappers scream and shout when it’s time to sell picks then hide when it’s time to publish results.  For years now we have been trying to set the new standard by publishing positions BEFORE the event goes then publishing all the results EACH MONDAY without fail. 

Transparency….you either have it or you do not!  Here’s how we fared this past week.

(All releases are understood to be a standard and hypothetical $100.00 per position unless otherwise stated.  We employ $100.00 to easily track results as every release is accounted for each Monday AM.  Public accounting allows us to display bottom line profitability while providing our readers with 110% disclosure).

Week 3 NFL:  2-1 pending MNF

GambLou Clients entered this week three of the NFL with a profitable 5-2 result.  This weekend in the NFL we realized a 2-1 Sunday with our last position of the week (the second part of a two team 6 point -110 tease) working in tonight’s contest.  We own market advantage with our teaser position and we may come back with something cute in an attempt to minimize exposure and maximize profitability (GambLou clients can expect every penny of profit the market may produce).  Check out or ‘NFL Consulting ‘ tab at the top of our webpage,  it’s worth your time as our Clients are happy, profitable and eager to attack NFL week four.  There is still mucho time for interested NFL players that want to bank bottom line to join us...don't be shy!

UFC:  3-1 + $485.00

In the UFC we had a stellar night uncovering barking beagles from Brasilia.  Overall we went 3-1 +485.  De La Torre was our sole loss (-100) with Silva (+150) Bigfoot/Nelson starts Rd 2 (+165) and a rare 2 unit position on Gillespie (+135, averaged out as our original wager was established early at +110 then we took another position once we saw +160).

Winning is fun.  When you are ready to have some fun of your own, check us out!

UFC FN 95 Cyborg vs. Lansburg: Thrilla in Brasilia - 9/24/2016


Welcome fight Enthusiasts to our view of tonight’s set-up card in Brasilia.  We say ‘set-up’ because this card seems specifically designed to throw gasoline on the blaze that is the secondary market for the UFC outside of the US, Brazil.  With new UFC leadership comes new ambition and the target for future growth and expansion for the UFC is outside of those two stable, semi-saturated markets.  Yet make no mistake about the fact that current UFC leadership is keenly aware that the continuation of their sports ‘eminent domain’ must be fueled by strength….the strength that is the core markets of the US and Brazil for they are foundational to the UFC’s expansion.  What better way to fuel a fire than to highlight a County’s own fighters on home turf against a horde of hand-picked adversaries?  Tonight we’ll be forced to dig deep in order to find any barking beagles in Brasilia but we feel very up to the task for many of these visiting fighters sport pride and grit, we’re about finding the athlete’s that came to Brasilia to kill ya.

Nelson -440 vs. Silva +390

Bigfoot against Big Country, what a matchup.  Big Country is now slow and plodding yet he has unbelievable power and cardio for a man that weights almost 260.  Bigfoot is larger, has a certain size and reach advantage but is perhaps even slower and more methodical in his striking approach than is his opponent.  Everyone in the hemisphere knows that Silva’s point is porcelain and that Big Country can fell a sequoia with his right hand….even Silva knows this.  While we believe Silva’s best days are years behind him we look for the giant to try to grope with Nelson and make this a clinching, sluggish slow dance.  Somehow this fight goes into the second round contrary to what many think.

Fight starts round 2 +165

Pepey -135 vs. De La Torre +125

Pepey arrives on relatively short notice after flattening Fili in his last outing.  He has a wild array of offensive weaponry that he utilizes and he utilizes it from the opening bell with relentlessness.  De La Torre has been hanging in the gym in Glendale, AZ. for months awaiting an assignment all the while training feverishly to round out his striking game.  De La Torre has mentioned in articles that he is aware that he must employ an aggressive attack to pare Pepey’s push and take this fight into the second round where De La Torre can wear on the smaller man and take advantage of this fight.  Pepey is prey…

De La Torre +125 (released earlier this week)

Chagas -150 vs. Silva +140

Silva +150 was released earlier this week also.  He opened -175 in a fight we feel was hand-picked for him to be able to shine yet apparently the gamblers disagree and have now taken Silva to a PLUS 140. While Chagas is no can he has not faced the competition that Silva has nor has he taken the public chastising that Silva has for his dynamic underachievement.  Silva’s recently changed camps and has had some life changes as well he must realize he is soon to be waiting tables f he does not show up past the first round of this fight.  We feel Silva is going to offer his top effort tonight (whatever that is) and his top effort is too much for Chagas.

Silva +150 (released earlier this week)

Franca -170 vs. Gillespie +160

We work diligently to get ahead of the lines in all of the sports we work and usually we own market advantage.  In this case we released Gillespie earlier in the week at +110.  Today’s price is reflective (in my opinion) of a horde of gamblers that are looking at the size of Franca (he towers over Gillespie with a 3” height advantage) as he looked to be a vastly bigger man at the faux weigh-ins.  We’ve always said not to judge the book by the cover in this sport and we trust that the kryptonite to a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighter is a world class NCAA d1 wrestler and that is exactly what Gillespie is.  Value

Gillespie +160

Money Morning: NFL & UFC Profitability report - 9/20/2016

5-2 +2.9 units

( clients invest a minimum of 5 units and up to 20 units per release Enthusiasts) NFL Clients realized a 3-0-1 week in the NFL for week 2. Our season tally for the NFL now stands 5-2 + 2.9 units (remember also Enthusiasts that most Clients are playing each game at 10 units per so Clients today are walking around with an extra $2900.00 in their pockets after two weeks easily justifying our fee.

UFC FN 94 Poirier vs. Johnson: Border Wars - 9/17/2016

Welcome fight Enthusiasts to UFC FN 94 held in Hidalgo, TX.  We’ll take this opportunity to pay tribute to the generations of Mexican fighters that have over the last four plus decades have contributed by their labors to teach me the fight game.  Attending the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ in the late 70’s allowed me to tune into the boxing scene up close and personal as I attended and traveled to many fight cards in Arizona, Nevada and SoCal.  These experiences allowed me to understand how deeply important fighting is to the Mexican fighter (yes, all fighters must have passion but today we salute specifically the Mexican fighters for their grit, toughness, determination and willingness to go win the fight).  So Today, as the UFC continues its expansion by courting the fight fans from the boarders of the Rio Grande in Texas tonight we too will publicly display our gratitude to the generations of great Mexican fighters (Sanchez, Chavez, Marquez, Barrera, Olivares, Canto, Morales, Serna) that privileged me by teaching me just what fighting means to the Mexican culture. Tonight, if we watch closely we’ll be able to witness of ourselves exactly what I am saying.

Here is today's free release, our whole slate of releases is available for purchase.  Good Luck and enjoy the fights

Perez -115 vs. Morales +105

We start right out of the dad gummed gate with what I believe may just be the best fight of the night as well it will display the infinite pride and determination each Mexican fighter is going to bring to the Octagon tonight in order to earn not only the ‘W’ but the respect and admiration of their peers in the audience tonight.  These fans are sharp generationally astute fight fans and they did not come to the fights tonight to see a grappling display.  Perez enters with the experience edge and a more complete MMA arsenal while Morales enters with all the numbers in his favor for he’ll be the bigger, longer and younger man in there tonight and a striker at that.  Prepare for one hell of a fight folks.  Who’s the hound?

Morales +105

Money Morning: NFL & UFC recaps - 9/12/2016

Monday's mean public accounting here at Gamblou World HQ.  Rather than chirp and twerp about unpublished positions, fantom results and self proclaimed success we prefer to publish all of our positions PRIOR to event date then tabulate the results to the penny each Monday.

In the NFL we stand 1-2 with the second half of a teaser working into tonight.  We realized loss with the Bears +6.5 and the Jets Moneyline +100.  We hit a Jag/Lion Teaser and own that second tease working into tonight where the first stage was Chiefs -1/2.  Sure we got lucky with the Chefs but we also realizwed a tough loss with the Jets.  Welcome to the NFL!

In the UFC we had a 1-3 result which is unacceptable but it is also the truth.  We'll move forward and focus on UFC FN 95 this weekend.  Our UFC results have been tepid all year..  Do not think for a minute that we don't plan on attacking the UFC these last couple months and finish our fiscal year like a Champion Irish turf horse heading for the wire!

UFC 203 Miocic vs. Overeem: Who's getting knocked 'Flats'? - 9/10/2016

Welcome fight Enthusiasts to UFC 203.  It’s clobbering time in Cleveland tonight and while we lost two fights we were planning on releasing there are still a couple of opportunities we’ll share with you in our pursuit of Profitable Sports Gaming.  We had a fine result last week and plan on carrying that momentum into tonight.  Here is our free release to Gamblou fight Enthusiasts who miss our old platform yet er urge those serious about banking bottom line on the UFC to consider purchasing our slate package today for a measly twenty seven smackers.  If you want to profit with pooches give us a try!

-Let’s Fight-

(All releases are understood to be a standard and hypothetical $100.00 per position unless otherwise stated.  We employ $100.00 to easily track results as every release is accounted for each Monday AM.  Public accounting allows us to display bottom line profitability while providing our readers with 110% disclosure).

Tavares -195 vs. Magalhaes +185

Tavares has been on ice for 16 months and he faces a Brazilian who’s been on the shelf for 14 months.  This fight to us comes down to which fighter manages the layoff best and to us that’s the grappling based fighter with power as opposed to the stand-up fighter who needs to use timing and precision punching to gain advantage.  We’ll take a flyer here with Magalhaes knowing that cardio improvement is easier to develop than a suspect beak.

Magalhaes +185 (half)

Medeiros -115 vs. Spencer -105

Numerically these men are almost mirror images of one another but upon closer look Medeiros is going to be the bigger man in the octagon tonight despite being the fighter who is moving up in weight class.  It’s our opinion that Medeiros was drawn and under equip to effectively fight for 15 minutes at the lightweight level so this move to welter makes great sense  Spencer will be the more skilled, faster precision punching fighter in this match yet his power leaves much to be desired and we do not believe Medeiros will fear Spencer’s ability to do anything but stick and move.  Yancy will need to bully and crowd the athletic Spencer and create a brawl for if Spencer is allowed to work in space the advantage is his.  Neither of these cats display any real defense and on top of that Spencer must protect a suspect chin.  Medeiros opened -160 and we were tempted to jump that at open so we clearly like the value of current pricing.

Medeiros -115 (released yesterday)

Rivera -160 vs. Faber +150

Few have pulled profit from a pugilist like we have from Jimmy Rivera but we feel the proclamations of Faber as inferior to anyone other than tthe top of the weighclass are without merit until proven.  We must witness Faber fail to anyone not clasping the belt before we doubt the California Kid.....especially as an underdog  Instead, we’ll remain committed to Faber being able to utilize his skills and dynamic experience to his advantage.  Uriah opened -130 and we caught him yesterday +155.  Do not think for a minute that Faber is not aware that he’s been bet into a potentially profitable pup position.  Value play

Faber +155 (released yesterday)

UFC FN 94 Barnett vs. Arlovski heavyweights hit Hamburg - 9/2/2016

Greetings fight Enthusiasts.  We’re back after a weekend of seminars, networking and camaraderie in Las Vegas where we focused mainly on the NFL.  We did dedicate enough time to enjoy the fight cad which was pretty good to us as we did mention (Twitter) that Maia +115 was a live dog heading into the main event.  We had other winners but Maia was the only one we published as we did not write that fight card up.

Moving into the Hamburg card for tomorrow, we feel that we’ve spotted a couple game German Shepard’s we believe are worthy of a few Euro’s.  

-Let’s Fight-

Khabilov -485 vs. Silva +385

Both of these guys are similar in approach as they are both versed on the mat, capable in the clinch and can also effectively strike standing up.  Khabilov has been the busier fighter and his destruction of a fighter we feel is quite game in Wade last out provides us plenty of hesitation here.  That said the opening line of Khabilov -210 seemed to us to be a bit light but not off by double.  This is a wager based on value.

Silva +385 (half)

Dalby -195 vs. Sobotta +175

Another value position as Sobotta, a southpaw opened the favorite -140 and is now +155.  Sobotta is off a layoff but recently fighters returning off a little rest have shown improved skills and we believe this may be the case tonight.  Sobotta will want to get this fight to the floor in our estimation and get top position in order to lay a little G&P on Dalby.  Dalby who is quite capable anywhere this fight goes has a stand up edge in our estimation and will attempt to use his speed and precision striking to keep Sobotta at length and negate his ability to get this fight to the floor.  Sobotta’s kicking may well be a key to this fight as well his ability to remain active and busy as this fight gets into the later stages.  We disagree with the waves of players on Dalby as the ‘recency bias’ seems in full effect here.

Sobotta +175

Gustaffson -700 vs. Blachowicz +500

Jan has more than no chance he has a puncher’s chance.  ‘Swing it Easy’

Blachowicz +500 (.25 unit)

Barnett -145 vs. Arlovski +135

As discussed on Wednesday’s MMA Meltdown program with Gabriel Morency on the FightNetwork that our position was made with Barnett ITD +123 but that number is long gone.  We see that Arlovski is entering this fight at 238 down considerably from his weight in his last two fights this year (246 and 248).  Our suspicion is that this fight may be a bit more tactical than many think?  Barnett is not really a lighting quick KO guy, though in time and with some attrition he is a finisher.  Arlovski knows his beak is brittle so our feel is that he will want to use movement and striking to keep Barnett at bay and find an opening for his power as the fight wears on.  Arlovski has been brutally KO’s in both of his previous fights this year which matters to a guy as chinny as he is.  We don’t feel it’s wise for Arlovski to rush out to get into a stand up war in immediate fashion here but we’ve been surprised before!  ….gotta love the Heavyweights!

Barnett -145            Over 1.5 -130 or less as line is compressing

UFC FN 93 Maia vs. Condit: Playing the pass - 8/26/2016

Good day fight Enthusiasts.  We prefer to notify all readers that because we're in Las Vegas focusing in on the Supercontest seminars and festivities we are unable to conduct the required Due Diligence for this fight card.  

In three years we have only missed one card per year and that is by design for we always take a week away from the NFL season as well.  We do this because  we always want to act on our gaming as opposed to the other way around.  We will not release positions that have not been reseached to our standard.  Plus our last card was not very profitable even though we had a two unit (rare) position on McGregor.  

We wish best of luck to all and next week we'll feature our Supercontest seminar synopsis on our new medium....uTube where we will put out a 1-2 minute Sports gaming insight each week called...

NFL Pre Season: Due Diligence only! - 8/23/2016

Welcome NFL Enthusiasts to Pre season football.  Savvy Investors in the NFL use the pre season of the NFL as Due Diligence ONLY for they fully understand that TEAM motivations are suspect this time of year but individual motivations are never higher.  For this reason we watch every fiorst half of the forst two weeks of the pre season.  This week three we'll view into the third quarter knowing that no team plays any starters in that fourth week.  That said it will take us until mid next week to fully view all the film and ready ourselves for the regular season.

This weekend we'll attend the Westgate Hotel's Super Contest.   The chance to network and visit qwith the professionals that gather at those seminars is really worthy of our time./  We visit, share and of course.

Each year we take extensive notes and after sending them to our Clients we do post them on our webpage for all to sghare so look for a College breakdown as well an NFL breakdown where we will share what is discussed in Las Vegas at these sessions.

Please see below our 2016 NFL Consulting offer.  We've earned for Clients these last two years (all records week by week are avaialble for both 2014 and 2015 by hitting the 'Profitability' tab on the top of this page) and many of our Clients have published testimonials for uus whcih can be found at the end of our Consulting review.

If you are serious about beating the NFL and just do not have the time to properly execute the diligence required to profit at the NFL then you need to consider the following. 

Thank You

NFL Consulting

Welcome potential NFL Consulting clients.  At we employ a matriculated, calculated approach to realizing bottom line profit in Sports Gaming most especially the NFL and College football.  Our gaming is conducted as a business.  We’ve realized bottom line Profitability privately for decades and publicly via for the last four years (of which the last two years results are displayed on our webpage on the ‘Profitability’ Tab). 

We publish Client results in our Money Morning blog and will continue to do so each week.  This practice allows those who are interested in our service but have not committed to review actual results prior to making a commitment for a four week run at NFL profitability.

Our approach is simple:  We fire from a rifle as opposed to a shotgun with regard to NFL gaming.  We do not sell picks by the game, the day or the week.  We encourage a long term approach to overcome what inevitably may happen to any professional handicapper….the off week.  We target a more experienced investor who may not have the time to conduct appropriate research but who does have a temperament for the benefits that WINNING Sports Gaming delivers.   We do not win every wager we release but we do realize bottom line profit over the long run which is why our service requires a monthly commitment. 


We stand by our results…we will provide any Client with at least the initial investment PLUS as return in the first monthly period or we’ll extend the initial period until your initial investment is recoupled plus profit. 

NO service stands by their results like we do!

Again available this year are testimonials from some of last year’s Clients who return this year based on last year’s profitability. Testimonials are attached at the end of this document and we can deliver more client access to those requesting such.

Our Service

We limit Client relationships each year to a select few.  Any interested investor should feel free to contact me or our past clients directly for questions/input as Client contact info is available with the testimonial at the end of this page.  We strive to completely satisfy those willing to utilize our expertise and in turn create a loyal Client base.  Slow quality growth is the GambLou goal and Client profitability is THE single point of focus. 

We monitor Client results each Monday on a one-on-one basis weekly so that as a team we are in total control of investment amounts, current balances, upcoming positions and bottom line profitability.  Our service runs for four NFL weeks which has been appropriate time for us to show our aptitude at NFL gaming and allows Clients to feel comfortable as they watch us operate to provide profitability.  It’s business after all.

Our consulting fee for the initial 4 week period is $500.00.  This covers all NFL activity (as well the college positions we release via the Legendary Math Model which are always gratis).  Those Clients signing up in August also get Futures positions (we provide those without charge once the subscription is received) and games of the year.  Last year Clients profited handsomely over their weekly NFL profits once our GOY and Future positions cashed and added to Client profitability.  We plan more of the same this year.

The Facts:

In other platforms/forums individuals must sell picks to earn.  Those that sell positions to earn make proclamations that 53% to 54% is an acceptable and profitable win rate over the long haul to which we say hogwash.  Because we remain supremely selective our win percentages have always exceeded those numbers and one glance at our archives will display this.  Our approach is unique and the result is Client profitability. 2014 NFL results (regular season and playoffs): 52-37 (58.43%, 13.47% ROI) 2015 NFL results (regular season and playoffs): 53-31 (63.1%, 23.54% ROI)

High win percentages enable us to make maverick moves with regard to buying off or through key numbers.  We play middle positions when it is advantageous, we work money lines (especially in the playoffs) in order to enhance the bottom line and we utilize the 6pt. -110 teaser in aggressive fashion. 

Our Pledge:

Any client choosing to utilize our service may expect the following: 

  • 2 to 5 total positions per week which equates to anywhere from 8 to 14 positions total for the initial month (in 2015 we averaged 4 releases per week) so profitability must be your goal not ‘ACTION’.
  • Personal access to me throughout the week via E mail and phone if requested.  We e-mail clients each Monday to update figures and we account to the penny.  We often invest aggressively early in the NFL week in order to obtain line advantage over the gaming market.  This provides us middle opportunities and other value enhancing maneuvers we actively employ to derive bottom line. 
  • We attend the Tuesday Meeting in Las Vegas (for years) with professional Las Vegas handicappers (both private and public) on a regular basis to network and discuss profitable positions in an open forum.  This form of due diligence is highly relevant and it is for our Client’s benefit.  The proof is in the results!
  • NFL Futures positions are provided to clients with a subscription which means joining in early August will allow you to gain access to any and all Future wagers and games of the year that we release.  Last year we had the Seahawk under season wins as well a Packer week 3 position both of which were profitable.  College football releases via the LMM are also offered as a privilege of membership.
  • All potential Clients must have their own resources with which to invest.  Clients must have the ability to buy half and full points and your outlet needs to accept 6 point two team teasers at -110.  It also should be stated that Clients should be able to play each release at a minimum of $550.00 per.  We track each release and keep specific records of all Client transactions, balances and progress. 
  • It must be understood that we are specifically a consulting service.  We do not take wagers nor do we condone anything illegal.  Our services are consultative based and focused toward an educated, refined player.
  • Further questions or issues may be addressed with us personally as we pride ourselves on tailoring our service to client needs. We offer consulting on a highly professional level for people who take their gaming seriously.   Those that wish to create a relationship with us will be dealt with in a professional and courteous manner. 

To review last year’s Client testimonials please see below and if there are further issues you wish to discuss with us directly please reach out.  We can be reached at lou@gambLou, and @GambLou on Twitter.


From Andrew Schmeltz:

Just writing this first sentence, I’m already getting excited for the upcoming NFL schedule and another season working with GambLou.  I had tried other football services, most leaving me disappointed with their results and/or actions, and swearing I would never fall for the pitch again.  With life changes, I found myself no longer having the time to fully digest all that the NFL requires and thinking of venturing back into the services I swore off years prior.  Luckily, I stumbled upon GambLou somewhere along the roads of the internet and have experienced zero regrets. 

WARNING: GambLou did NOT go 80-15…but guess what, no one really does.   There were even some losing weeks…but that’s going to happen.  By the way, there is also no Monday Night 100 STAR BOMB to chase the week into a false winner or plays on every kickoff just for action. What I did experience, was realistic year-end profitability with my money management in mind. 

From the “GambLou Assurance”, where nothing further is asked unless your showing a profit above your investment, to routine contact from Lou himself, giving an update for the weekend ahead or answering questions I may have had, my expectations were met and exceeded.  Football services are not for everyone…hell, I’m not even sure they are for me.  What I am sure of is that I’m coming back for another year with Lou, and not thinking twice about it. 

@iuschmeltz on Twitter

From Scott Alan:

I paid GambLou for his service last year and did not actually make positions on his releases until October which was a huge mistake on my part because I left plenty of profit on the table.  Once he kicked me in the butt and I got on board I did nothing but win money.  Sure I had a week or two when I had to pay the man but I ended up realizing that there is no way I am waiting this year.  My money is in and I await his Future plays and GOY releases.  He says it’s business and it is.

Scott Alan (e mail available upon request from Lou)

From Joe Finocchiaro

(Joe is my nephew and has been with me for years....we're about full disclosure here))

My Uncle Lou wins at football.  I invest aggressively in the NFL and I would not begin to address the NFL wagering without GambLou’s advice and wisdom.  If you know how this Gaming world works, have some gaming experience but not enough time to properly handicap the NFL and want a reputable, honest handicapper that does what he says and sticks to his word then you need to give Lou your allegiance.  He WILL earn your trust.

@Joefino15 on twitter

From Drew Regan:

Uncle Louie - I would like to thank you for all of the knowledge and winners you've given me over the past few years. What I've learned utmost from you is your "dog" theory - which by the way, I first heard you talk about in 1979!  Yes sir, you were on it back then. You told me, with so many college and pro games on the board - the books are underestimating SOMEONE - so go find that one - or two or three games that are there!  But do your "homework". I think you now call that "due diligence”.  But it is so, so true!  Best of all about you is your character - you stand up to your results and you never ever run and hide from them rather few produce the kind of NFL results I have watched you produce for decades now.  I appreciate the knowledge that you've shared with me and I will continue ride your coat tails to profitability.
@Drewshoo on Twitter

From Legit Jedediah:

When you are a part of Lou's service, you know you have an edge. You know that it isn't someone picking games based on feelings, but someone that works diligently throughout the year to find the small edges that create profitable opportunities. Lou truly does all of the grind while you get to enjoy all of the shine.

UFC 202 Diaz vs. McGregor: "Welter Skelter" - 8/20/2016

Welcome fight Enthusiasts to UFC 202.   We have a superior card rolling out tonight with important fights that mean something.  The main event means mucho for its winner while the Johnson/Teixeira fight and the Mafny/Larking fight are critical for those respective victors also.  here's today's free look.  It comes from our main blog as all free releases we make have beeg given earlier to Clients.  Good Luck and enjoy the fights!

McGregor -130 vs. Diaz +110

Originally posted last week:

Here's our take, on this rematch.  Diaz plays tonight for money and McGregor took this fight for pride first then money.  If McGregor is a great generational MMA fighter (and we feel he just may be) then this is a fight he must win in order to move forward and eventually set up the biggest of the three paydays when the trilogy comes to conclusion and they Super Fight.  Make little mistake that this is how more money will be made, not by this second fight but by the third!

McGregor opened -300 for their first fight and was bet up from that number until the fight closed around -440 or so.  At one point in time that number reached McGregor -5 something.  McGregor's first tussle with Diaz was loaded with mistakes and we feel this fight may well be different in so far as his gas tank goes ofr in recent days it seems to us that MacGregor will fight like a furious fanatic from the opening bell on which is something he tried in the last but failed.  This would be a major gamble yet from his actions it seems very possible form his actions that Conor is going to sprint toward nate and try to do to him what Hagler did to Tommy Hearns a couple decades ago.  

Nate wants to get paid then petition for other money fights as he swells in the popularity KO'ing the loudmouth has delivered him.  An trilogy with these two for the new owners of this organization either soon or eventually down the road would net mucho money.  It's the larger, more durable fighter against the future of the game, a fighter with speed, precision striking and movement albeit one that is less rounded in all the arts than his opponent.  A classic in the making....we'll soon see.

For more actual fight insight please see the link below where I spoke to Matt Youmans of the Las Vegas Review Journal and broke down this fight.  Thank You Matt!

McGregor -130

We find it refreshing to every once in a while throw a ‘back to basics’ lesson in for all to read and incorporate into their own Profitable Sports Gaming routine.  Putting a fresh spin on best practices reinforces basic fundamental principles of the gaming business in our own pursuit of the bottom line and we hope it contributes to yours.   

Our point of emphasis today is to encourage all to acquire the drive, determination and dedication to peruse more available wagering outlets than you are using currently.  If you use one entity I am asking you to go find another.   If you are like me and use multiple resources then by all means…..bring in another.  No ‘Maker will say no to any new client (fresh meat).

Point spread advantage, an extra nickel on the Money line, or for that matter any penny of line advantage against the market must be sought after and searched for like a lost wedding ring.  It is that important!

When applied to one’s daily gaming routine, scouring for ‘market advantage’ is quite a worthy undertaking.  Acquiring line advantage over the market or “getting the best of it” over time contributes to profitability as much as any practice one may perform.  Advantage however, is not something one trips over through luck;  advantage is acquired through work, grind, and effort….yes Enthusiasts, there’s always more precision Due Diligence required. 

Suffice it to say that Ol’ Uncle Louie scours for line value on the Sports we work like a fat kid in a Bavarian bakery.  We are relentless in our pursuit of any Advantage we may obtain in our ultimate competition with the betting market.  We spend mucho time scouring the numbers that will ultimately give us a nickel or dime worth of advantage in any sporting endeavor we are pursuing (that nickel or dime represents pure profitability and over pads profitability). 

We spend serious time shopping lines/spreads in order to gain Advantage.  Obtaining advantage over the market is thrilling when accomplished for over time if one is consistently ‘getting the best of the line’ profitability WILL be enhanced.  To Ol’ Uncle Louie discovering that extra nickel on any opinion is similar to that first kiss with a beautiful woman (or man depending on one’s interests).  

In summary, if you are working to be Profitable at Sports Gaming, lesson numero uno is to shop for Advantage.  Shopping for line advantage is a simple undertaking if one is focused on every penny of profit.  As a practice this undetrtaking requires only common sense and a deep desire to be on top of the market as opposed to being in its wake. 

Shopping for Advantage is underestimated as a practice by too many in the pursuit of…….

Narrow focus and increase expertise - 8/8/2016

Good Day gaming Enthusiasts.  The professional NFL handicapper today has little time off.  Here at HQ we devote immense time into handicapping.  Refining our exclusive NFL Power ratings (including home field value-add) has been an ongoing process from the end of the Super Bowl as it has been for decades.  The truth is that at this stage of life, my competitive nature has me devoting the time to provide profitability in sporting events to Clients and of course to keep Mrs. GambLou happy.  The ability to dedicate the necessary time handicapping provides us with ‘return on investment’.  Just like any business investment must be made, due diligence performed and daily effort spent in order to profit on the investment.  Check our results on the “Profitability” tab at the top of our webpage and you will be able to see detailed records and results, win percentages and ROI for all the gaming events we work.

As we approach the NFL season its trades, coaching changes, draft additions, off season surgeries, suspensions etc. that keep us on our toes until we get to this point of the season.  Beginning with this past weekend’s Hall of Fame embarrassment, we’ll continue to invest comprehensive time as we watch the first half of each team’s first two pre-season games then each team’s third pre-season contest.  Believing that one knows and actually knowing are very different my friends. 

Here at GambLou headquarters we ‘plan our work then work our plan’.  We’ve been refining our Due Diligence process each year for almost 40 years in order to be able to work smart as opposed to working long.  At the end of the day however who’s counting the hours?  We’re planning on counting deposits!  We justify our time spent with the return we earn.

Understanding team strengths, Coaching philosophies, offensive identities, defensive schemes, team schedules, travel and special team capabilities are required this line of work.  We invest time in understanding the second string capabilities of each player on each team which provides us with the thorough knowledge we require in order to compete with the Makers.    

‘Narrow your focus and increasing your expertise’.  This is the best advice we ever received years ago as we were beginning our sales career.  This practice enables us to realize success specifically in the NFL (we also work the UFC, Puck Playoffs and the other boutique Gaming opportunities like the College World Series).  For the past 3 years we have published our positions in the NFL (and all sporting endeavors) for all to read, digest and invest in if they so choose to.  We’ll allow the results we have realized for the last 3 years to speak as again those results are all posted on our webpage! 

We are poised to share our comprehensive NFL gaming knowledge to interested individuals or groups as we roll toward the 2016 NFL season.  For any interested in enlisting us to work with you on a consultative manner please check out the ‘NFL Consulting’ tab found at the top of the webpage.  Our pricing is premium but our returning Clients have all posted testimonials on our service for you to review if interested.

  1. We devote the necessary time, energy and effort to Clients willing to invest in our services to provide them with bottom line and in turn utilize their success as a basis to help build our consulting in a very slow yet measured manner.  This is our third year and we are growing steadily.
  2. We have no desire to try to satisfy gross numbers of subscribers which in turn dilutes the time and knowledge we provide to those that step up to our NFL service.  Also, we run our own Profitable Sports Gaming business and we can’t be distracted trying to accommodate the many at the expense of our own bottom line and the bottom line of those that choose to enlist us as their trusted partner/consultant. 

Good Luck to all and remember:  Due Diligence; Selectivity; Money Management.  These are the foundations of….

UFC FN92 Caceres vs. Rodriguez: Leglocks by the Lake - 8/6/2016

Welcome fight Enthusiasts to our manner of producing profit from putrid pups.  While this card tonight may not seem to feature the big names and luster of previous UFC fight cards, it does offer profit opportunities.  The main event will feature two dynamic young mixed martial artists who define and exemplify the evolution of this sport and the assimilation of all the fighting specialties that together create the modern mixed martial artist.  Watch Caceres and Rodriguez tonight for it will be a peek into what’s on the horizon in this sport that is still in its infancy as far as development and evolution are concerned.    

We’ve researched the card for fighters we believe match-up well to their opponent both stylistically and physically then we reduce them to those fighters that we believe will offer their top effort tonight.  We try to discover top effort, team commitment (did the fighter arrive to SLC’s altitude a day or so ago or a weeks ago?), physical/mental advantages and finally we assess whether the market price presents value before we move.  It’s business.

 (All releases are understood to be a standard and hypothetical $100.00 per position unless otherwise stated.  We employ $100.00 to easily track results as every release is accounted for each Monday AM.  Public accounting allows us to display bottom line profitability while providing our readers with 110% disclosure).

Ponzinibbio -115 vs. Cummings +105

We mentioned on the FightNetwork with Gabriel Morency this past week how we missed much of the line value in UFC 201 waiting for better value and that moving forward we’d be more aggressive in taking a price on a fighter that we felt offered value WHEN it came available.  We then discussed our move on Cummings +150 (which we released right here at Monday).   Ponzinibbio is a fast ferocious striker who’s been running roughshod over the weight class on his drive enter the division’s top fifteen.   Ponzi has pop, power and is more athletic than Cummings but we do not judge fighters by their looks rather by the competence of their fight arsenal.  Cummings is a superior grappler/wrestler and his success will hinge on being able to get Ponzi to utilize energy in that first round, weather the Argentinean’s striking attack and get this fight into the second round.  We feel Cummings’ cardo will be an advantage in this fight even though we acknowledge that the Argentinean fighter did arrive here early to acclimate to the altitude.  Cummings needs to make this fight a senior prom slow dance and force the faster more athletic Argentinean to expend energy early so he can grapple for advantage in the later rounds.

Putrid Pups, dirty Dogs and mangy Mutts - 8/3/2016

When determining which final choices the refined opinion maker opts to side with for any particular event, there exists a simple criterion that we’ve incorporated into our repertoire that has directed us profitably for literally decades.  By simple make-up Uncle Louie is an underdog player.  To say that is dedicated to dogs is accurate.  Those that follow our positions and suspicions understand that we scour to discover ‘live’ underdogs as a foundation of our success.  Of course we ‘never say never’ but in our review and selection of the best values possible within any slate, card or schedule it is certain that we will work diligently to uncover value in a qualified underdog.  This is not to say that we will not play a chalk but it is as difficult for us to breathe under water as it is for us to play that occasional Chalk. 

In the event we determine there is value in a chalk position we will work to uncover props or alternate lines which allow us to angle for enhanced gaming value.  We have utilized this practice well over the years for it provides us with such value.  Enhancing the value of a Chalk position by using available resources may increase profitability by narrowing the specificity of the position (this can be best explained in UFC betting, as one may not wish to take the chalk at a price of -300 but to consider that same Chalk to KO/TKO the other bloke for a better price/return).  This is but one sensible way to create value by shopping many outlets, their props positions and any exotics they offer.

We're in the middle of conducting our dynamic Due Diligence for the upcoming 2016 NFL season and believe us when we tell you that each year in the NFL there are surprises.  Our task is to eliminate surprises and calculate, create and enhance our gaming opportunities. 

Due Diligence used as a tool to uncover value in underdog positions is but one pillar of our success.  More self-sufficiency angles coming over the next few weeks.

UFC 201: Lawlor vs. Woodley: Ambar’s from the ATL - 7/30/2016

Welcome to UFC 201 fight Enthusiasts.  We must confess to being somewhat vexed by the line movement with the fights on this card.  Earlier this week with Gabriel Morency on his MMAMeltdown show that airs on the Fight Network we discussed Woodley +170 in some depth and our lean to him inside the distance (ITD) +315.  Kowalkiewicz was then +190 and Serrano at the time we taped was -135.  The price on Woodley and Kowalkiewicz, to our surprise has eroded while the Serrano line today works to our favor.  Another fight we did not discuss was Erik Perez who we grabbed -120 early this week, we completely blew that fight for he is now -155 and that takes the value away from him.  These line moves alter our approach somewhat as we will never advise Clients/readers to move on any gaming event where the line value is poor or has gone away.  We’ll remain Selective today and take a poke at what we believe will be profitable pooches.

UFC 201 Free Release:

Serrano -110 vs. Benoit +100

Benoit who takes this fight on very short notice is a capable offensive mixed martial artist.  He has a wresting base but against Serrano he will dare not go there.  Rather we see him employing a striking, kicking and clinching attack against Serrano tonight.  Serrano is a very accomplished wrestling based fighter from Columbia that is older yet gives the experience edge to his opponent.  Serrano’s cardio, grinding gritty style while perhaps not exciting for the UFC fans look like DaVinci to us.  We see Fredy getting his hand raised here in a tough close bout.

Serrano -110
